Kauai has new leadership

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty RB-20941

Bernard Carvalho Jr. was elected as Kauai's new mayor in last week's elections.  Kauai is one of 4 counties comprising the state of Hawaii and each county is run by a mayor so this is a responsible position.  He defeated Joann Yukimura in the general election with 57% of the vote and will serve as mayor for the next 2 years.  That will complete the remainder of former Mayor Brian Baptiste's term which was interrupted by his sudden death on June 23 due to a heart attach. 

Mayor Carvalho has stated his #1 priority is assembling his team and the first issue to be addressed is Kauai's deteriorating economy.  He plans to meed with the business community in this regard.  Mayor Carvalho supports attempting to bring the Superferry back to Kauai which he believes will help our slumping economy.  Joann Yukimura had been endorsed by the Sierra Club which opposed Superferry operations.

Mayor Carvalho has strong community support including my own and I believe we will see good things from him.

Aloha!

Fargo has said in the press that HSF expects to wait for the Act 2 EIS to be finished before returning to Kauai.  It doesn't help Carvalho nor Kauai to waste time on this now when there are many more immediate pressing needs on the island.  Anyway, the events of Dec. 18th and 19th may very well make this all a moot point. 

In the meantime, for intellectuals, check this out:  www.superferrychronicles.com; in the past week this locally produced book has been skyrocketing up the Amazon.com sales list.  

Aloha, Brad
